Winter Intersession 

Welcome to the Shaw University’s Winter Intersession. These classes are equivalent to the same courses taught during the regular semester and can be transferred to most institutions of higher education. These classes are equivalent to a semester of class work but put in a 3 week format. 

All courses are online. No campus visits are required. All students will need access to the internet, a valid email address, and should be motivated self-starters as these courses have a semester of course work constrained to 3 weeks.

Students may take only ONE course per intersession. One (1) credit hour courses cost $500. Three (3) credit hour courses costs $1,500. Cost does not include books. Textbooks are needed for many of the intersession courses. You can order your textbooks online via the course textbook link.

All new students must complete the online application form.  A $25 non-refundable application processing fee is charged. Course payment is due at time of registration.
